Storyline

Doug Martin, the bartender at MacLaren's, is a brutishly large, toupee wearing man. He is also slightly dimwitted and angry but who is fiercely loyal to his regulars. That fierce loyalty leads to Doug challenging a group of bar patrons to a back alley fight on Lily, Robin, Ted, Marshall and Barney's behalf, but with the implication that Ted, Barney and Marshall join him in the brawl. After thinking about it, Ted, who has never been in a bona fide fist fight, believes a fight is something he needs to do once in his life and agrees to join Doug. Barney also goes to fight once he finds out that Robin, the hockey fan, is into brawlers. Marshall, on the other hand, won't fight, stating that he's been in many a fight before with his brothers and doesn't need to prove anything. When Ted and Barney come back from the fight with black eyes but are still standing while their opponents are out cold, they are seen as heroes by the other bar patrons, except for Marshall. Ted and Barney, basking in... Written by Huggo

Trivia

There is a short flashback, Marshall and Ted are seen eating a sandwich while watching a Kung Fu-movie. This references How I Met Your Mother: How I Met Everyone Else (2007) in which older Ted replaces all references to smoking marijuana by describing that he and his friends were eating a sandwich.

Barney Stinson: -your nails?
Marshall Eriksen: Hahaha, no. I was doing...
Ted Mosby: -a relationship-quiz in this month's Cosmo?
Marshall Eriksen: NO, I was doing...
